Benson Buffett's construction law practice has extensive experience in this field, representing several of the Provinces largest builders and developers. Benson Buffett maintains strong ties with the residential building industry, and several of its lawyers practice in both commercial and residential real estate and civil litigation, providing a unique skill set to effectively advocate for our clients in construction law disputes.
In non-contentious matters, and depending on the project, our clients may require advice in many areas including: general business matters, bridge loans, alternative financing, corporate matters, tax, regulatory and permitting, tendering, construction, real estate, development, government relations, environmental issues and labour law disciplines.
Building on previous client projects, our lawyers are able to quickly assess the nature and complexity of the issues surrounding the procurement, the preferred management and delivery mechanisms for a project and the potential risks and benefits associated with it, from project financing, both conventional and alternative, to construction and commissioning.
Where necessary, our lawyers can also advise clients on insolvency and bankruptcy matters including builders’ liens and other remedies.
